Tuesday's storms that swept through Marion County caused the destruction of a barn on Settles Road belonging to Tom and Deanna Thornton.
Deanna Thornton said her neighbor called her around 1:15 p.m. Sept. 25 to let her know that barn was on fire. Lightning struck the barn during the storm.
Thornton said firefighters from Bradfordsville responded.
"There wasn't anything they could do," she said. "It was pretty far gone."
The firefighters did make sure the fire did not spread to other buildings on the property, including the Thorntons' home.
She added that they stored farm equipment in the barn, but no one was hurt as a result of the fire.
"We're just glad it wasn't worse," Deanna Thornton said.
